Personalize Email Subject

Personalization of email subject is a very important element of an effective email marketing. Statistically, emails with personalized subjects are opened more often on 29.3%

Now with Balbooa Joomla Forms you have a possibility not only personalize the email text, but also the email subject.

How to personalize the email subject?! It's very easy! Under the field Email Subject we have added the link "Add Form Fields To Email Subject", when you click this link a modal window is opening with a fields list of created form.

If we talk directly about personalization of email subject, in the first instance you have to add a field “Name” in the email subject. But how we have noticed before, in email subject you can add absolutely any field of your form.

Option "+Add Form Fields To Email Subject" is available not only for Admin Notification emails but for Auto Reply (emails are sent to form submitter)

Personalize your emails, make them exceptional and conversions increase is guaranteed to you!

Save and Continue Later

The greatest achievement of Forms version 1.6.3 is the option "Save and Continue Later". Option "Save and Continue Later" will be very helpful if you create huge form with a lot of fields and pages.

"Save and Continue Later" allows the user to save the progress of fields filling and continue later at any one time using another computer or mobile device.

How it works?! At the bottom of each multi page form is displayed the link "Save and Continue Later", when you click on it the modal window appears.

Inside of the modal window is located the link to a form with unique ID. The user should keep the link or he can send a link to his email, for that he has to enter his email address and click on the button Submit.
